Polyurea Applications - Mining

Mining Industry

The mining environment takes a tremendous toll on infrastructure and equipment. Extreme temperatures, moisture, dust, air and the tough process of extracting precious resources, create a perfect atmosphere for corrosion and abrasion damage. This eventually impedes the efficiency of equipment, reduces the integrity of structures, minimizes productivity, and increases maintenance costs.

Originally developed as blast mitigating polymers for a U.S. Government entity. ULC discovered that the next generation of polyurea offers the highest level of abrasion and impact protection. Unit Liner Companys' advanced, industrial strength polyurea coatings create an impermeable, airtight, abrasion and impact-resistant barrier that provides tenacious protection from the harsh mining environment.

Featured Industry Solutions

K5™

K5™ is an ultra high-strength, hign-elongation polyurea, originally developed as a resilient blast resistant polymer. Soon after, it was discovered that K5™ is exceptionally resistant to abrasion, compared to other spray applied coatings. K5™ can be sprayed on to virtually any surface configuration, at any thickness. Therefore, it can be selectively applied to high wear areas.

HT™ 100F UB

HT™ 100F UB is a high tensile, high elongation, high build, fast-set, elatomer, specifically formulated to provide a tenacious bond to certain thermoset plastic surfaces. Unlike most spray-applied polyurea, HT™ 100F UB has the unique advantage of adhering to many polymetric substrates, both new and aged, typically without the use of primers or extensive surface preparation. It provides a cost effective, flexible, tough, resilient monolithic membrane with water and chemical resistance.

PTU™

PTU™ is a new generation of high-performance polyurea coating and is the result of six years of development and field testing. This chemical resistant coating provides high-ductility, allowing it to move with expanding and contracting surfaces. PTU™ can be sprayed to any thickness in one application and returned to service in a matter of hours.

ULC has over 40 unique polyurea elastomer coatins with a wide range of physical properties to meet your specific project requirement. ULC only produces 100% solids, pure polyurea coatins that contain no VOCs, solvents, or harmful ozone depleting ingredients. Our knowledgeable team of industry experts will work closely with you from your project's beginning to the end, providing reliable coatin solutions, SSPC/NACE standards and project specifications.
